Resources and Funding Opportunities 

Johns Hopkins Frailty Assessment Calculator
In an attempt to standardize the practice of frailty assessment and the computing algorithm, this online Frailty Assessment Calculator was developed by the Johns Hopkins Older Americans Independence Center to maximize the inference validity for cross-study comparisons or meta analysis.  To learn more about the online Frailty Assessment Calculator, please click here

Training Resources for Junior Faculty
The JHU OAIC works closely with numerous educational initiatives at Johns Hopkins University to offer outstanding research and clinical training to all of investigators interested in frailty research.  To learn more about available training resources, please click here

Healthy Aging Studies Unit
The Healthy Aging Studies Unit, formerly called the Clinical Translation Unit, is located on the Bayview Medical Campus, which is the primary focus of the division’s clinical activities. This unit provides infrastructure elements common to interventional frailty studies, including research assistants trained in the assessment of physical frailty and cognitive measures, information technology, and nursing personnel. It also also maintains a registry of patients in the inpatient and outpatient geriatric facilities who are willing to consider participation in clinical and intervention studies. Please contact 410-550-2113 for more information. To learn about ongoing studies, please click here

Requests for Proposals (OAIC Funding Opportunities)
